Underrated: Richie Incognito, Nebraska
This former All-Big 12 lineman, projected as a center, could be the steal of the entire draft. He was dominant his two seasons with the Huskers and was one of the most impressive linemen at February's NFL Scouting Combine, running a sub-4.9 40. Why, then, is he only considered a second-day pick? Besides suffering a mild knee sprain at the combine, it's, to put it mildly, his baggage. Incognito has a long history of anger-management problems: He was ejected against Penn State his freshman year for fighting, accused of spitting on opposing players and convicted of misdemeanor assault from a fight at a party. He was suspended indefinitely by Nebraska coach Bill Callahan, left school and, after a very brief stay at Oregon, ultimately sat out last season. But he's made every effort to turn the corner, including working with former NFL head coach/offensive line guru Jim Hanifan, who compares Incognito's talent to that of NFL veteran Zach Weigert. With proper off-the-field support -- and most pro teams have ample such resources -- he should flourish.
